What is the best frequent flyer program?

There are a lot of different kinds of frequent flyer programs out there, each with great benefits, so which is the best one for you? The best airline program is the one that provides you with the most rewards for the least effort and expense. Since each program offers different benefits and rewards, you should take into account what program is going to give you what you want.

If you don’t want to be limited to one particular carrier, airline credit cards let you earn points that can be used to obtain free tickets on over 250 major airlines. This means that you are less limited by seat availability when booking for your free flight.
